Ok so I’m new here and I just want to see everyone’s honest opinion on my situation. We have talked about getting married and ive been told many “set dates” that a proposal was going to happen on. And clearly they have not. But we have started planning to pretty much elope next year March 2018 but I still don’t forsee me getting this proposal that he will consider us engaged….which I think is bs because we have talked about it and even set a time line. I feel dumb. We have been together a year and a half. We have a 3 month old baby now. We live together and we both know we want to be together forever. I’m losing hope though. I’m pretty bummed that these dates hes told me have came and gone and nothings happened. Hes telling me these plans he has with his money (paying bills well in advance and then saving the rest)….so i cant help but think when TF is this going to happen.

In real life I don’t think a year and half is very long. Your life is slightly different in that you guys have a baby but honestly you guys have only been dating for year and half and went through pregnancy in that time as well. As far as the proposal go, what’s the big deal. You are already planning your elopement for next year, I would consider u guys even above engagement and almost married already.

I can understand your frustration, but remember in terms of dating, a year and half isn’t long. I’ve been dating my man for two years long distance and he hasn’t proposed yet. Give him time, maybe he’ll do a surprise proposal. Just remember that there’s a lot of bees who have been waiting a very long time and still aren’t engaged yet and probably won’t be anytime soon. If you love him very much as you say, you’ll wait for him no matter how long it takes.

In terms of dating, a year and a half is not a long time – especially considering that you became pregnant 6 months in (please correct me if I’m wrong, but my assumption is that it was accidental?). From an outsider’s perspective, I’d be concerned that he’s not ready to get married and perhaps staying with you for the sake of the child. I can totally understand your desire to get married to this man because it sounds like you really do love him. Maybe have serious talk with him to determine if he’s stalling because he doesn’t feel ready yet? Sorry, bee 🙁

I understand your frustration, but as others have said, a year and a half is not long. And it seems that you didn’t even really have much time to date and get to know each other before you got pregnant. Are you sure that this is who you even want to spend the rest of your life with? Or are trying to force it quicker than usual because you two now have a baby together? How old are you?
